FT Bloody Wonder V2 - PROJECT

JTI

Just Throw It
#65
My year old second build is still going strong through many an unintentional landing. I don't know if they were talking about my BWs rudders, but I'll pretend like they were :rolleyes: and throw that old video up for old time's sake.

Great flying.

I added leds in the wing and flew in the dark.
The rudders on mine don't react as crazy as your's do.
I think it could knife edge if I ever get good enough with it.

Full Sized Plans - No Joy
I am blessed to have access to a Large Print/Plotter (HP Designjet T1200). Normally I can simply print the fullsized plans. The Bloody Wonder has a Single very Wide page PDF. I've tried to print it in different Orientations (Portrait/Lanscape), but it still prints it with the Right Edge cut off. There are properties in the PDF that override my attempt to fix it. Does anyone have any ideas how to Rotate or Paginate the PDF so it can be printed fill sized?


Best regards,
PCH

UPDATE:

I found a free program that will rotate the PDF.
This allowed me to print it the long way (as the paper unrolls).
It worked, but wastes a lot of paper.
The best option would be to break the PDF up into two shorter pages - I guess that FT would need to do this.

Here is the Program I used -
PDF Split and Merge basic
Website: http://www.pdfsam.org
When installing, I'd recommend skipping over all optional software that is offered.


Best Regards,

You can get these in great condition off of ebay from seller RC4U. A great bunch of guys to deal with.
Im getting ready to maiden my 30% reduced Ft Versa Wing as soon as the weather lets up here...wish me luck on that..
Until next time, keep it in the air
